Tron: Legacy's Garrett Hedlund in negotiations with Warner for role of Kaneda
i say yes to this!
Why do you always comment on your own things? Aren't you busy copy and pasting articles over at Saiyan Island?
So...we can't comment on the stories we post now? And aren't personal attacks unallowed on here?
I would say no to this simply because it would mean they are making the mistake of white washing the entire cast(which shocks no one)
They should AT LEAST have some hot japanese chick as the main female character, i mean, there are heaps of hot japanese actors, no need to white wash the movie, everyone loves hot asians.
I don't mind what they are doing to the cast, just don't mess up the script (they will).
Great, a white chick staring in a Japanese movie.
Yep. They're basically turning something Japanese into something Western. This movie isn't just a slap in the face, it's also a kick in the crotch.
i heard they will make "Neo Tokyo" into "Neo Manhattan"
Yeah I heard the same. Probably just to help create a more familiar setting for the audience. Probably also makes things easier for the crew as far as costs go as well.
Ugh. Once again, Hollywood is whitewashing a non-white movie. For once it would be nice to see Japanese protagonists in a blockbuster movie who aren't just there to be martial artists or stereotypical 'Asian nerds'. :(
I don't mind that they're turning the characters into Americans in an American city but why Keira Knightley? I just don't like her.
It's sort of understandable that they are using white actors, it's more for the visual appeal honestly. While fans of the original are angsty about the white actors, others will see them and feel more comfortable with seeing the movie. It's unfortunate that that is what it eventually ends up coming to, but they are trying to reach a broader audience to make a sucessful movie, and the only popular Japanese/Chinese actor in America is Jackie Chan.
Koto has a point but let's keep our fingers crossed for more Rain movies.
DAMNIT! Double post...out of bubbles now.
